Forskar på
  • My research focuses on socio-economic inequalities, cultural diversity, and migration in relation to early childhood education and care (ECEC). I publish in academic journals with high impact factors and in professional journals for (ECEC) teachers in Norwegian, Polish, and Croatian. The phenomenon of migration is strongly connected to my life experiences. My areas of interest are as follows:
  • Children and migration
  • ECEC cooperation with migrant parents
  • Bullying as result of growing socio-economic inequalities
  • Belonging and participation of migrant children in the ECEC context
  • ECE as arena for trust in multi- and intercultural societies
  • I am interested in cooperation in EEA-grants of all kinds, H2020 as well as Horizon Europe proposals.
